PlayStation Now is going to get a major boost in value later this year, as Sony announced today that it will soon add PS4 games to the PS Now lineup.

PlayStation Now gets a new UI worthy of streaming name

PlayStation Now has been dubbed by some as the Netflix of games due to its streaming nature but up until now, that was pretty much only in name. Now, Sony's game streaming service has something to show for it as well. Taking a cue from the design of actual streaming service, the PlayStation Now interface just received a face lift which truly makes the nascent gaming trend feel more like a streaming service and less like a hard to reach corner of the PS Store.
